Butterfly


Today I am working on my stamping.  I have had this swirl stamp for years, and have just now become reacquainted with it.   I love the way this turned out, nothing special. It didn’t take a lot of time to make, I like that.  I used sizzix dies for the butterfly, label and banner, then added a few Nuvo drops for accent.


Hope you like this and stop by again sometime.

Feathers

Today I thought I would work on my stach of male cards.  It has always been hard for me to put together something for a guy.  I like feathers; however, I just can't seem to get them the way I want.  I thought, breafly, that I would use real feathers.  I know I can find some down by the water, I see them all the time. Today I am going to use a file from Silhouette design #78354. I cut everything in white card stock and then color washed the background and used embossing powder on the foreground.  I like the way it turned out and hope you do too.

Beautiful Day

I have had this stamp set for a while, I tried several times to cut the stamped images with the Cricut and the Silhouette.  I didn't have any luck. the lines are too thin and the software just couldn't make out the images. I recently purchased the dies to go with it.  This is such a lovely stamp set. I used Distress inks on the flower, leaves and pens on the little details.   I really like the way this turned out.  The saw the original design on Pinterest.  The background cut file is from Silhouette.

Hope you tile this and come again soon to see what I am working on.

Lovely Flower

Today is a very wet cold day, so I decided to make a few cards for my stash.  I recently received several dies I purchased, just after Christmas, from eBay.  They are so nice and the cuts are wonderful. I must remember to put some sticky back on them though. They were very hard to get glued down.  There are several different dies represented in this card: Hero arts is the flower and bee, sizzix the wreath and the stems are off brand from china.


Hope you enjoy and come again soon.

Valentines Day Boxes

Sorry I didn't get these posted prior to valentines; but I was busy making so many.  My daughter needed 12 and I had to make some for the girls at the office. They turned out so cute and I had a blast making them.  The file is a little difficult, the insert for the eyes is exactly the same size as the front of the box.  I cut them down by hand on each side and the bottom; however, if you had time, you could adjust them to be a perfect match. These are both Silhouette files, dogs are #89360 cats are #89222. I enlarged the box part to fit the entire mat and used a pen to write the sentiment. It was a perfect fit for 2 mini bags of M&Ms.

Hope you like these, I am going to try and post more of my creations. So often I just make them and never post.  Have a great Monday.

Twist Pop-Up Card

This week I have been learning to do the new twist pop-up card design.  I recently purchased the Avery Elle; caroling critters stamps & dies. This set is super cute and I thought it would look good on a card like this.  I was right, this came out great.  It was a little tedious with all the folding, but well worth the effort.
I got the instruction from Maymay made it Craft.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPrvxgXsyu8. I have seen a lot of these videos, but she made it simple.
Check this out:

Thanks for stopping by and hope you try this card design too.

Black and Yellow

This week I am working on getting some card together to give to a friend. I recently purchased the Tim Holtz wildflowers thinlits.  This a DCWV paper pack is several years old, t
he frame is a Silhouette cut. I cut the wildflowers twice and then cut the top to add to the green.  I love the way this turned out.


Hope you come back again.
